  Leading NJ Ad Agency Launches Co-Working Space To Help Creative Individuals and Small Businesses Thrive Together

The S3 Agency, the award-winning advertising agency based in Boonton, NJ, today officially launched the NJ Creative Collective: co-working space designed to help creative individuals and small businesses thrive together. Located on one floor of The S3 Agency's historic downtown building, the NJ Creative Collective is more than just a rental workspace; rather, it is a concept designed to foster inspiration, new business opportunities, and lasting relationships to help its creative members thrive in the Garden State.
Since 2001, The S3 Agency has been known for creating cutting-edge campaigns to help brands like BMW, Tetley Tea, and Wyndham Worldwide achieve their goals. Now S3 is launching the NJ Creative Collective to help talented creative individuals and smaller companies achieve their goals through a collaborative space that inspires idea generation as well as new business opportunities.
"The NJ Creative Collective is more than just a co-working space. It is designed to be a co-profiting space as well," said Denise Blasevick, CEO and Founding Partner at The S3 Agency. "Our tagline, 'Create Together. Collect Together.' captures the NJCC spirit: we want to give creative individuals and micro-businesses the chance to prosper together in the same environment that has helped inspire the campaigns we create for national brands."
"While technology makes it easy for creative professionals to work out of their homes, that's not always the best way to come up with the best work," said Adam Schnitzler, CCO and Founding Partner at The S3 Agency. "We want the NJCC to give all sorts of creative individuals - app designers, web programmers, video editors, illustrators, animators, photographers, etc. - a place to call home, together. Strong collaboration has been the key to S3's success, and the NJCC brings that same opportunity to others in our industry."
The NJ Creative Collective includes workspace for up to 12 individuals, from dedicated desk to private office setups. Business amenities include coffee, high-speed Internet, and common areas for socializing - as well as access to S3's main conference room.

A Place For the Community At the Post Office Is In The Works!

Boonton Main Street's Information Kiosk has been inaccessible to the public since the area it is located in has been closed off indefinitely for safety reasons. Since then, BMS has been looking to relocate the Information Kiosk to an accessible and predominate location along Main Street, and the large open space in front of the Boonton Post Office seems to be the perfect location. This new location would allow visitors to be informed of events and business promotions in our downtown area, and then by adding historically-insipred seating and planters we could also transform this unused area into a community gathering and "information plaza" for Post Office customers, residents and downtown visitors alike.

We have been working with the Eagle Scouts to move the kiosk from the Boardwalk to the Boonton Post Office property. Our Eagle Scout, Hunter, will be coordinating with the BMS Design team the move of the kiosk, the re-furbishing of the kiosk,  and the installation of the kiosk and bench(es). 

We hope that you will contribute to this project and help improve the historic Boonton downtown district. Deadline for funding for this project will be June 2017.  If you are interested in being part of this initiative please donate here.
Help the Boonton Main Street Team Beautify Boonton! 

Sustained by contributions and volunteer support, Boonton Main Street Inc. is a non-profit dedicated to increasing awareness and foot traffic to benefit Boonton's historic downtown shopping district. We accomplish our mission through events (like First Fridays), advertising and resource sharing. 

Boonton Main Street receives its funding from various sources including our municipality, corporations, other non-profits and generous tax deductible gifts from individuals like yourself. In addition to the funds it takes to run our operation, we use these dollars to carry out our mission through fundraising, events, advertising and beautification. One example is the facade project that was completed at the bottom of Main Street (shown here) and was part of the volunteer led and building/business owner funded "Facade Program", one of the many programs that can continue with your support of the organization. Won't you please contribute so we can continue our mission for Boonton Main Street!
